Ooops. Tried to save a little money?
What you've found is that the refill kits DO NOT match the chemical makeup of the original ink. The original ink has special properties and lubricants made specifically for the printer. Using a refill kit ink has probably clogged the print head. And since the ink is not the correct chemical makeup, trying to clean the head just puts more bad ink into the head.
You might try using the correct ink cartridge and hopefully it will purge the problem. Otherwise a new printer will be in order as replacing the print head can cost as much or more that a new printer.

i have a lexmark Z601 printer whitch worked fine till i re-filled the color cartridge for the 3rd time,is there a limit on how many times you can re-fill them?
there is ink in the cartridge and there is ink on the print head so why does it not print on the paper?
